BTS Says They’re Looking ‘at the Positive Side’ After Losing First Grammy Nomination
Following the awards show on Sunday night, the K-pop group appeared on the South Korean live video streaming service V Live to chat with their fans about the big night.
J-Hope, Jimin, Jin, Jungkook, RM, Suga and V appeared virtually from Seoul during Sunday’s show for a performance of their English-language hit “Dynamite,” for which they earned their first-ever nomination for best pop duo/group performance. They are the first K-pop act to ever receive a Grammy nod.
During their V Live, the group shared their thoughts about why they didn’t win the coveted award.
“The reason we weren’t able to win is, I think many of you probably expect this, but we took it as them telling us to come and get the award in person,” RM explained.

“I saw a lot of articles saying we ‘failed’ to get the award, but I don’t think it’s a fail since we were able to perform for the first time as nominees,” RM said. “I don’t think it’s a failure but let’s look at the positive side; we were nominated for the first time and did our first solo performance.”
